’Tis the season to be thankful!
November is a great time to carve out some time for yourself and acknowledge all that you are grateful for. As we prepare for the holiday hustle and bustle, we encourage you to take a moment, close your eyes,
and remember all of your blessings.
#Thankful is the theme for the month!
Regardless of where you are in your life journey, there is always something to be
thankful for. Even if you have lost everything, you still have your life and the
powerful ability to show gratitude to yourself and the world by spreading love,
kindness and respect.
Feeling thankful can improve your overall health and create an overall optimistic
outlook and attitude from within. People that practice gratitude tend to develop
healthy habits including exercising and eating nutritiously. When we take a
moment to meditate on and count our blessings we can be taken over by a sense of
calm and relaxation, which further more improves our immune system and
decreases our blood pressure. The holiday season can be quite busy and stressful.
3 Ways to be a More Thankful Person
1. Thank yourself. Make sure you give yourself a “thank you” for being the
wonderful being that you are, all that you do and all that you plan to do.
Recognize the healthy living, exercise and eating habits you have developed in
your own life, such as attending Pilates class twice a week or giving yourself
enough time for rest each night.
2. Lend a hand and change your perspective. If you are having a hard time finding
something to feel thankful for, put yourself in the shoes of someone else and
show up for them. The world is filled with many misfortunes, yet actively
creating change in other people’s lives can stimulate a change within our own,
and can help us realize the moments which we are thankful for.
3. Keep a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is a diary where you can jot down
all of the things that you are grateful for. Gratitude journals are all the craze
these days for a good reason. Practicing gratitude improves our mental,
emotional and physical health. This is a positive way to focus your attention on
the positive things in your life. On a rough day, you can look back through the
pages of your journal and relive the multitude of blessings in your life.
